the news has been focused on egypt and on yemen and the protests of u.s. embassies in those countries and in about nine other countries around the globe today. these protests flaring in response to a cure, obscure, anti-muslim video of still murky origins. nbc's richard engel is going to be joining us live from cairo shortly be the latest news from there. see, these are images from cairo. people still gathered near the u.s. embassy, still rather hairy situation as you can see there. we'll be checking in with richard momentarily. >>> when moammar gadhafi was still alive, when he was still the dictator of libya, gadhafi had a plan to settle the conflict between israel and the palestinians. to settle that issue once and for all in a very simple way, all you had to do, he said, was make a new place. a new place that would be called isratine. so it was like israel and palestine but you combined them so it would be isratine. he thought just calling a new place that would settle everything. moammar gadhafi also had a condoleezza price problem in he loved condoleezza rice too much. when his c
way to a safer venue after protesters attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi and opened fire. the violence in protest to that amateur online film produced in the u.s. that offended millions and millions of muslims. first, we want to bring in elise labott. she has known ambassador stevens for ten years. she works at the state department for us. elise this is a tragedy for the entire diplomatic community this morning. >> yes, yes. john, this is a terrible day for the state department. everyone is going to be in mourning today. it's not just the fact that chris stevens was such a popular figure of the state department. really, one of the cream of the crop of the u.s. foreign service. but it's been many years since someone of this level has been killed in an attack like this. so i think there's going to be a lot of shockwaves through the state department. after all the u.s. has done for the libyans. using force to get rid of moammar gadhafi, to help libya stand up as it moved towards elections, as it tries to start anew. i think there's going to be a lot of gut checking right now
the muslim world this week, sparked by a low budget movie by a mystery film maker. the u.s. embassies found themselves under attack by outraged mobs and in some cases forces fired on mobs with deadly consequences and all of it caused a dramatic shift in the presidential campaign as foreign policy suddenly took center stage. ben wedeman is back in cairo. it seems that this weekend there seems to be a cooling of heads to a certain degree in egypt. is that what you're seeing, ben? >> certainly among the leaders of the muslim brotherhood and in the administration of the egyptian president, there is an attempt to calm down the situation rhetorically. and certainly we've seen in messages conveyed by leaders of the muslim brotherhood and the egyptian president, they're trying to send a message of reassurance to washington. but at the same time they're kind of walking a tight rope between washington and the street here in egypt, where there is anger, where we have seen these protests really going on around the clock. and therefore there's a difference between what we're hearing in english from the
